Prof. John Walker

Assistant Professor of Theatre

John Walker is a stage actor who has also acted in television and film for over forty years. His Acting career stretches from New York City to Hollywood, California. More recently, among other projects, John has continued his voice over career narrating audiobooks by writers such as Anthony Esolen and Fr. George William Rutler for Catholic Audio Publishing, as well as writing and acting in “The Golden Key,” his one-man television play on the life of G. K. Chesterton that was filmed at EWTN studios.

Professor Walker feels truly blessed to be a part of the Franciscan University of Steubenville faculty teaching courses and directing mainstages within the Theatre major.

Ever since the Catholic Church resurrected theatre for Western Civilization in 965 AD with the liturgical drama Quem Quaeritis, the Church has had a tightly interwoven relationship with the art form of theatre. An art form when performed with authentic craft and resonating honesty unveils the truth, goodness, and beauty of the human condition. Here at Franciscan University, our faith is still tightly woven to everything we do within this art form.
